So What Are Y'all Driving For Econoboxes?

Hey all, this was a topic on the Mustang forum, so I was curious as to what my Powerstroke bretheren were rolling in when they want to save some $$ on fuel.

I'll start off, it's not a REAL econobox but it's what I've got:

My '98 Mustang GT, I've seen 24 mpg on the freeway, but I'm never light footed enough to see what it could REALLY get.

All I have is my beast. Wife drives Silverado. However, she is a stay at home mom and I only have a 20 mile round trip commute to work.

I have my 1998 Neon, that hasn't run since March of 04. Though, even if it did, it wouldn't be saving me much money. It only gets like 25-30 mpg due to all the modifications I've done over the years. Poor Neon.

The big ole dually is the econobox. I was putting a half tank of fuel in it for the same price or cheaper than the wife was filling up the Focus of course now gas prices are going down so that will change but I still will be drivin the big truck.
